I know that Frost's implications were much more pervasive, but all I could
think of as I was reading this poem was my mother, who suffers from
Alzheimer's. She dwells in a "ghost house" from which she cannot escape,
at the end of a "road" by which I can no longer reach her. All that she
has left are vague memories of long ago (the cellar). Her nights are full
of fears and nightmares (bats), and in her shadowy mind, she is often
visited by long-dead friends and companions. The whipporwill, I believe,
is Death coming closer as the poet anticipates his arrival. On some level,
my mother also hears this call, but for her it is a siren's song.

My English professor is a big fan of Frost “The Ghost House” I believe
Robert Frost was referencing the emptiness felt while living at the farm
house his grandparent left to him and his family. The house was old and
seemed to be lonely during his struggles with becoming a know poet. I felt
the poem because I can relate to living in an old house that seems empty
after everyone left. The eerie feeling inside about struggling to make
ends meet to raise a family can contribute to the ghostly feeling of the
